BitDefender comes to Linux

Security firm's offerings approved by SuSE and Red Hat

BitDefender's Security for Mail Servers and Security for Samba suites have been approved for compliance with Red Hat and Novell's SuSE Linux operating systems.

The compliance ensures that current and future BitDefender security solutions are compatible with Red Hat Enterprise Linux and Novell's SuSE Linux Enterprise Server.

Under the agreements, BitDefender Security for Mail Servers and BitDefender Security for Samba will be available on Red Hat's ISV catalogue and on Novell's Technology Partners website.

BitDefender Security for Mail Servers brings together antivirus, anti-spyware, anti-spam and anti-phishing engines that secure the mail traffic of companies and service providers. The product is compatible with the majority of existing email platforms.

BitDefender Security for Samba provides antivirus and anti-spyware protection for Samba network shares.

"Red Hat and Novell are the two largest Linux distributors in the world," said Alexandru Balan, Linux product manager at BitDefender.

"We have designed our software to be fully POSIX compliant, automatically integrating with all the most popular mail servers and packaged for all the major Linux distributors, as well as FreeBSD."
